Hi all, M here. Just wanted to share a quick thought that I have shared with Mrs M many times over at this point. When it comes to CBS’s new Theo James-Chi McBride police procedural Golden Boy, I have one thing to say…
I CANNOT wait until it fails and is off the air. I don’t care if this make me a bad person, knowing people’s livelihood may be on the line. I don’t care that I literally have not watched one minute of the show, thus have no actual proof it is as horrible as I think it must be. CBS has been shoving this formulaic-looking piece of balderdash down my throat for weeks. At times commercials for it have been in EVERY commercial break for hour long shows, and I just can’t stand it. I want it to be gone, and will be giddy when it is.
*** UPDATE ***
As of last Friday, May 10, 2013, this show has been cancelled. WHEEEEEEEEEEE!
M: We’re getting to the end of the box office doldrums. May officially starts the summer movie season, even if those of us in the northeast are still waiting impatiently for the “early” spring that Punxsutawney Phil promised us well over six weeks ago. With that said, April usually tosses in one or two things to get the ball rolling. I can’t speak for my sisters, but this year there’s one movie I’m really looking forward to, and one that I’m intrigued by against my better judgement. We’ll get to those. Once again, this is not a full and complete list, just the big films, and the small ones that may have piqued one of our interests.
M: A big episode for Wonder Twin #2, aka Ryan, aka some other Irish name that I keep wanting to call Finnick Odair.
E: Oh, because it’s very similar, actually.
M: Exactly. Okay, it was Fenton O’Connell. No, I couldn’t remember that, and yes, I had to search about 15 web sites before finding even one that mentioned it. It was only a pivotal part of the episode, why the heck would other recappers mention that? Continue reading →
M: It seems like we say this about a lot of months when doing these previews, but February is not traditionally a powerhouse month for movies.
E: Well, there are what, five powerhouse months for movies in the year? So it follows that some of them will be lame.
M: Yeah, and looking back over a few boxofficemojo lists, February’s a pretty sad slate. Of the biggest opening weekends in February in history, the top 10 includes such cinematic masterpieces as Valentine’s Day (3rd), Madea Goes To Jail (8th), and Daredevil (10th).
C: Classy! I had forgotten Daredevil existed.
M: I’m pretty sure Ben Affleck, who had a great showing at the Golden Globes a couple weeks ago and the SAG last weekend, is hoping everyone has forgotten Daredevil existed. Continue reading →
M: December is always big, as you have school vacations and the final push for Oscars. This year is no different, and has at least two movies that the siblings are DYING to see, in the first installment of The Hobbit and Les Mis.
E: Like, “ready to pre-purchase our tickets and go with huge groups of friends so we can squeal together afterward” dying. That’s us.
M: And trust us, that’s not all December has to offer!
